The book of Romans is arguably one of the most challenging of the New Testament letters. However, grasping its intention can be a richly rewarding experience for both serious students of the Bible and laymen alike. The Teaching Paraphrase: Volume 2 Romans is Douglas A. Adamson's fresh look at Apostle Paul's epistle, created to offer a simple, yet substantial understanding of this complex text.
Placing a great emphasis on love, and its primacy among Christians of every manner, this devout and cautious work has been conceived to be easy to grasp, yet offer benefits that are nothing short of monumental. The author's work is the result of his rigorous engagement with The Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament, including several versions, commentaries, and other writings.
In reconciling some of his own convictions with popular theological systems, Adamson endeavors to further clarify this text that harmonizes the New Testament. The result is at once provocative and profound, and achieved without compromising the Greek text. Anyone who wants to mine the tremendous wealth of this all-important epistle will find a revelatory resource in Adamson's straightforward, stirring paraphrase.

About the Author
Born in Brownsville, Pennsylvania, Douglas A. Adamson enjoyed an idyllic childhood on the Monongahela River. In 1950 he moved to Indianapolis with his wife, where he studied at the Indiana Christian University, receiving a bachelor of arts degree and a master's of theology degree. Though he did not pursue a profession in religion, the author has studied the Scripture throughout his life. He eventually became keenly aware that God wanted him to share his knowledge with others, and gave him the idea of producing a paraphrase of some New Testament letters, beginning with the three most difficult epistles, Romans, Galatians, and Hebrews. To do so, he worked with The Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament, including several versions, commentaries, and other writings.
